My absolute favourite shop in Newcastle. I love the people who run it so much, and it's so good to know I'm making a positive difference in the world by choosing to support their business. Special mention goes to their herbs and spices selection; I can guarantee you'll not find them cheaper elsewhere!!

I'm so happy this shop exists! It's so important we have a place to buy plastic free food, cosmetic and everyday use items. Next time I'm in Newcastle I'll definitely visit in person.
